M. Sometimes they took an alternate route via Budapest, the home of Bernie's aunt Rebecca, the sister closest to Bernie's mother in age and friendship, where they would spend a day or two before continuing. These visits to Kiskunhalas were the high points of Bernie's year. Beyond the train rides, Bernie loved the time spent with his grandfather. ” Because the grandparents were elderly, Aunt Libby met the boys and their mother at the Kiskunhalas station. From the moment of their arrival, she monitored their behavior relentlessly and sternly corrected each transgression, no matter how minor.

This meal was followed by the recital and singing of traditional prayers. Young men from the Yeshiva —upper-level students whose homes were not in the area—were invited to the meal, to pray with the family, tell stories of their lives, and accompany the Rosners in song. These young men also joined the family for several other meals during the rest of the week and became part of the ritual life of Bernie's Orthodox family. The Sabbath day started at 9 o'clock with an extended service at the synagogue that lasted until almost noon.

But the answer to my repeated questions over the phone was silence.
